that argument and not deal with the equal pay issue. >> and clearly lilly ledbetter is one of the best president obama mentioned in the debate, one of the best talking points to that suburban women group and that's why they're mentioning it in the debate and on every campaign stump he makes. >> chris cillizza, thank you. see you later. >> thank you. >> talk to you at the end of the show. to the campaign trial. mitt romney is in new york, ann romney is there as well because the romneys and president obama, well mitt romney and speak at t dinner. it's the archdiocese owe sis of new york in charge. nbc's peter alexander also in new york for that event. hey, peter, good to see you. first of all, mitt romney is going to be speaking at the al smith dinner. president obama is going to go on jon stewart, tape jon stewart "the daly show" beforehand. it's a humerus evening. we know what kind of evenings these are like. this comes after a debate which made it clear these two men don't like each other. >> reporter: imagine what that conversations's going to be like when they greet each other shaking hands.

ledbetter and jane walsh, whose new book is "what's the matter with white people." thank you for coming on the program tonight. it really has come down to the strange way in which mitt romney speaks, how he speaks almost in a 1950s pre-"mad men" era, if you will, about men and women in the workplace. >> that's right. and he's scaring me to death. it scares me for my family, my neighbors, and all the people across this nation because if he's elected and these crazy ideals are implemented, i don't know where we common people will end up. it is so scary, chris, for where we're headed, and these are not even common sense thinking ideals about what he wants to do. i don't and would not want an employer of mine to decide what i can do with my body or my birth control or what medications i can take. i just want my equal pay for equal work at work, and then i do not want and do not believe that abortion is killing someone. i do not because most of those are done simply because it's to save a woman's life. >> let's take a look at this. mitt romney's problem with many women voters stretches far a

. they have worked very hard to pass a the lilly ledbetter fair pay act. a major effort ensued by my colleagues at the national women's law center. ultimately, it past four years ago. it was the first bill that obama signed. it got us just back to where everybody thought the law was all these decades. there is a bill regarding the paycheck fairness act that is a modernized and updated and deals with some of the loopholes in the equal pay act to help us. it is an economically important issue for women. it did pass the house at one point. it ran into a filibuster problem in the senate. it has yet to pass the paycheck fairness act and vigorous enforcement. these are critically important steps for women's economic security and the security of their families. now we know that women do not work for "pin" money. [laughter] women need paychecks to keep their families going. the children need them. the women need them. this is no laughing matter. this is a technicality. -- no technicality. these are hard core policies that politicians decide upon that women need to be informed about in making

to pass that act. secondly, they believe ledbetter act -- lily ledbetter act should be more of a consensus. we had to pass that over the objections of republicans in the senate, but we got it passed in 2009. there are a lot of ways to begin to remedy those basic injustices. at the same time, we should take steps to grow the economy. we should continue to create jobs for the american people, men and women. of thenent's support orion budget and some other radical proposals, instead of moving us forward on jobs, it would take us down a sharp right turn back into the ditch. i think we can prepare it -- repair those injustices. >> i do not want to get bogged down in numbers, but when you talk about uranium enrichment, things can provoke anxiety in terms of what iran either is or is not doing. you need to enrich uranium between 3%-5% for the purposes of nuclear power. they have a knowledge -- acknowledged to the u.n. uranium enrichment upwards of 20% and they now claim it is for medical research. the standard for web and eyes that uranium is enriched up to 85% -- for enriched uranium is up to 85

. >> the first bill i signed was something called the lilly ledbetter bill, and it wa named after this amazing woman who had been doing the same job as a man for years, found out that she was getting paid less and the supreme court said that she codn't bring suit becaus fo it earlier. but she had no way of finding out about dnit. so we fixed that. >> question, are mitt romney's binders full of women, the equivalent in this debate as the big bird in the first debate? a lot of obama supporters will leap to lanpoon but a really trivia pursuit. >> i don't think it's trivial it at all. that statement was incredibly clumsy and stupid. republican brand and the damage that has been done to the republican brand, the republican party's brand over the last year in terms of people talking about women putting between their legs for contraception, a state tegislator in wisconsin saying one could argue that money is more important to men. all of you are laughing, it's not funny. that money is more important to men than it is to women. it is a very serious problem. but why i believe mmitt romney numbers have

was a dodge of a question about this very point, whether he supports the lilly ledbetter fair pay act. his response with that strange wording about binde erers full women went viral mostly due to his awkwardness and in addition to being awkward, it's not true. let's start with the line itself. >> i went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks. they brought us whole binders full of women. >> well, shannon o'brien, mitt romney's opponent, said the scenario romney prevented in which he proactively sought out the binders full of women was not exactly the case. it came from the women's group. let's listen. >> i call it another one of mitt's massachusetts myths, and he's made himself the shining knight. the fact is there was a group mass gap which is the government appointments project put together by a number of bipartisan women's groups. at the time there were approximately, i don't know, 30% of women in high ranking positions in that administration, and this group got together and demanded, frankly, of me and of mitt romney that we make a pledge, that we pledge to br

to the president. >> when governor romney's campaign was asked about the lilly ledbetter bill, whether he supported it, he said, i'll get back to you. that's not the kind of advocacy women need in any economy. now, there's some other issues that have a bearing on how women succeed in the workplace. for example, better health care. now, a major difference in this campaign is that governor romney feels comfortable having politicians in washington decide the health care choices women are making. i think that's a mistake. in my health care bill, i said, insurance companies need to provide contraceptive coverage. to everybody who's insured. this is not just a health issue, it's an economic issue for women. >> let me ask you this -- by the way, that president we saw last night is the president i've seen in several off the record briefings you get before state of the unions and stuff like that, where he's in control, pacing in his way, very logical in his span of knowledge. let me ask you this about the women's thing last night. i couldn't believe the president was lucky enough -- almost like he had a rin

's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> last night, on "hardball," political activist ledbetter explained the importance of the fair pay act. take a listen. >> it's just a fundamental american right. and the men in this country, like yourself, they all understand it now, because their wives, their daughters, daughter-in-laws, granddaughters are all working. it takes two people to earn a living. i don't think mitt romney is ever going to bring himself to commit, yes, the ledbetter bill will stay on the books, yes, it's a good bill, we need it. i don't think he will. and i know paul ryan is not, because he never supported it. and this is such a terrible injustice to the working women and their families across this nation, it's not right. >> don't miss "hardball" with chris matthews weekdays at 5:00 and 7:00 eastern only on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> here's your "first look" at how wall street will kick off the day. dow closed at 13,584 after losing 8 points yesterday. the s&p was down 3, the nasdaq fell 31. >>> taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo, the

in the white house or if mitt romney becomes its newest occupant. yesterday i spoke with lilly ledbetter. the lilly ledbetter pay act was the first act signed by mr. obama. i asked lily who answered the question better. >> absolutely president obama talked about having the ledbetter bill being the first bill that he signed into the law when he first went into the white house and he's exactly right and he talked about that he wanted equal pay because his grandmother who worked all those many hours in the bank was by passed and he wanted to be sure that his daughters swrould a fair chance to be given the equal opportunity to work and be treated like anyone's son. and when he is so committed to the women's causes. like he said, it's not just families. when you're talking about a woman, you're talking about a family issue. >> let me ask you about another comment that governor romney made related to women. listen to this. >> we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become member of our cabinet. i went to a number of women's groups and

. it was a double digit when female voters were brought into the equation. you brought up ledbetter, and it will focus around the economy. i will play this sound clip from two years. let me finish, please. >> there's nothing important than what you make an hour. >> i agree. two years ago velma hart was as a cnbc town hall. she's a female african-american supporter of president obama. she'll be on the show later. let me play what she said to president obama, and if he gets a similar question this time around, how does he answer it this time in play velma hart, please. >> i'm one of your middle class americans, and quite frankly i'm exhausted. i'm exhausted defending you and your administration and defending the mantle of change i voted for and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. >> how does the president answer that tonight if it's posed to him? >> you have to deal with objective facts. if that's that person's condition, that's what it is. she has to live with the facts. the facts are our economy is better than it was. the facts are the stock market has doubled. we've co

in the workforce. >> now, abby, let's get to policy. the lilly ledbetter act, asked the campaign where they stood. watch. >> does governor romney support the lilly ledbetter act? >> sam, we'll get back to you on that. >> we'll get back to you on that. then, ed gillespie on the same lilly ledbetter act, the governor would not repeal the lilly lilly led led better act. he was opposed to it at the time. he would not repeal it. and then he said, i was wrong when i said last night governor romney opposed the lilly ledbetter act. and then on and on. the contradictions when you're dealing with inequality of pay with women, whether he was with lilly ledbetter or not, we're going into other areas. i mean, he has a problem with women's issues. >> he absolutely does, reverend. i would say beyond the gaffe, the bigger issue is the fact that he cannot take a stand on really any issue and last night we saw that this pertained to women. he can't take a stand when it comes to women that are an important part of the voting population. he was making strides. we saw in the latest usa today poll that he was doing pr

the lily ledbetter act? >> sam, we'll get back to you on that. >> yeah, we'll get back to you on that. we have to play that to be fair to the story. that was the romney campaign response on equal pay for women back in april. that would be six months ago. six months later, still don't have any answers. last night, both candidates were asked about pay equity. president obama pointed to the very first bill he signed, the lily ledbetter fair pay act, which gives women the ability to sue over pay inequity. mitt romney ignored the question, and instead discussed appointing women to top jobs while he was governor of massachusetts. >> and i went to my staff, and i said, how come all the people for these jobs are all men? and they said, well, these are the people that have qualifications. and i said, gosh, well, can't we find some women that are also qualified? >> well, in 2002, mitt romney was 55 years old and he had been a leader in the business world for decades. why didn't he know any qualified women to appoint? >> and so we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds

support that bill. you don't have to wait for an answer from me. the lily ledbetter fair pay act was the first bill i signed into law as president. the first bill. >> now, an update on that riff, actually. what the president just said there about mitt romney's top adviser, admitting last night that mitt romney was actually against the fair pay act for women. that is true. ed gillespie said that on mitt romney's behalf last night. but then, update, today the campaign changed its mind and said, never mind, no, no, no, mitt romney is not against fair pay for women. of course, paul ryan voted against it in congress. the romney campaign used to say it did not know mr. romney's position on the subject. last night mr. romney himself refused to give a position, then the campaign said last night that he was against it, then today they say he's not against it, but he wouldn't repeal it, so maybe that means he's fine with it. everybody clear on that? the president went on today to talk about mr. romney's ideas on contraception, another area where mr. romney's campaign is an inpenetrable mes

, this is "cnn saturday morning." >> governor romney's campaign was asked about the lily ledbetter rule, and he said i'll get back to you. >> it was the issue that sparked a national dialogue about the women's vote. we talk with lily ledbetter about equal pay, her reaction to the debate and the number one issue for women issues. >>> they're the 8% to 10% who may decide the election. all morning we're putting the uncommitted voter in focus. >>> one week after the tragic suicide of amanda todd, a canadian law mamaker is introdug legislation to combat cyber bullying. so why is one father, who also lost his son, against it? >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. it is 10:00 on the east coast, 7:00 a.m. on the west. glad you're with us. we start with new evidence of security concerns in libya and warnings from a murdered ambassador. chris stevens sounded the alarms before he and three other americans were killed in the deadly consulate attack in benghazi. republican leaders in the house have released dozens of documents in the investigation. 166 pages, e-mails and cables between the state depar

me understand something. marco rubio was on over the weekend and he said that the lilly ledbetter act wasn't about helping women and i know you may be able to interpret this for me because i can't figure this out. let me play it to you and explain this to me. >> all right. >> just because they call it a piece of legislation, it doesn't make it so. much of this legislation is, in many respects, an effort to help trial lawyers collect their fees and file lawsuits which may not contribute whatsoever. >> two questions. one, how do you have a bill for equal pay for women but it's not for equal pay for women and how do you attract women voters saying things like that? >> well, he's just completely wrong and in terms of the political implications. the american people understand very clearly what the lilly ledbetter act is all about and the fact that the romney campaign has been unable repeatedly unable to articulate what governor romney's position is on the act, where he stands on it today and what he would do if he were president i think is a huge vulnerability and the microtargeting that t

no specifics. he still has not said if he supports the lilly ledbetter act. you'll remember this answer. >> jennifer: crickets. well, it's october, and we are still waiting. last night actually senior advisor, ed gillespie told the "huffington post" that mitt romney would not have signed the lilly ledbetter fair pay act into law, but then today ed gillespie did an about face and he said, quote . . . he never weighed in on it. he is just a blank canvas waiting for you to guess what he thinks and what we'll do. and that lack of specifics might be helping with women. lake research partners said 5 f% of women in swing states felt that the president won compared to 34% said that romney did. maybe last night brought the women back. on the campaign trail both candidates seemed to be angling for the female vote. the president stood in front of a virtual wall of women and made his pitch. >> we should make sure all of our young people our daughters as well as our sons to thriving in these fields. we don't have to find a bunch of binders to make sure women can complete in these fiel

this answer from his campaign. >> something governor romney support the lily ledbetter act. >> we'll get back to you on that. >> contradict. well, it's october and we are still waiting. last night actually, senior advisor ed gill recipe told the huffing to know post that mitt romney would not have signed the act into law but today oops, he did an about face and pulled the classic mitt romney flip-flop and said: >> he never weighed in on it. he's just a blank canvas waiting for you to guess what he'll think and do. that lack of specifics might be hurting him with women who thought the president won last night. 56% of women in swing states felt that the president won compared to 34% who said romney did. earlier this week, there was a gallop poll suggesting the president's lead disappeared. maybe last night brought it back. both candidates on the campaign trail seemed to angle for the women vote. the president stood in front of a virtual wall of women and made his pitch. >> we should make sure all our young people, daughters as well as our sons are thriving in these fields. we don't have to coll

ledbetter and he didn't oppose it either. he has no real position on them. if you try to listen to this repositioning and unpositioning and whatever he's doing, as a conservative, you'd be troubled by all of this. what he's saying with the binders, you know, whatever he's saying with the binders, seen seengsseengowe sengslily affirmative action. what ann romney said today about life issues is certainly not conservative. on a matter of core principle and values to conservatives, he's willing to do whatever he has to do when he governs. not that he's cravin, he has no principle when governing. he can govern as pro-life or pro-choice guy. who knows? >> ted kennedy said i'm pro-choice, my opponent is multiple choice. >> to your -- the thing you are getting at a second ago is fundamental. the reason the president was ahead by five or six pointed in september he was doing -- you did a segment on the show at the time -- he was overperforming with white, blue collar women, waitress moms. >> according to the waitress moms as coined by ron brownstein. >> so the problem he's had since denv

, in his campaign's position on the lily ledbetter act? you have complete, i guess, gar belled response here. one part of the campaign says that he does not support the lily ledbetter act. then he does support equal pay, but as congressman ryan said, it was an issue of lawsuits and litigations. where does he stand? do we have a clear answer, even aafter the debate, after having time to think about this, where governor romney stands on equal pay? >> i think the answer you just identified is no. it's the intentionally muddy middle, and we could be seeing some daylight between him and congressman ryan. in the past he had not actually answered the question and left it up to the imagination. so i think you identified the correct answer there. >> so, steve, let me bring you in on this. equal pay. governor romney says he's for equal bay but not the lily ledbetter aact. does that make sense to you? what are the risks to say you would support something -- you're married and you care about your wife getting a fair shake at work. what is the problem with governor romney just coming out and saying
